Morton’s Neuroma is a pathological condition of the common digital nerve in the foot, most frequently between the third and fourth metatarsals (third inter-metatarsal space). The nerve sheath becomes abnormally thickened with fibrous (scar) tissue and the nerve fibres eventually deteriorate.This condition is named for the American surgeon, Thomas George Morton (1835-1903), who first recognised the condition in 1876. Incidentally his father was the dentist who discovered the anaesthetics; initially Nitrous oxide, the very gas used today in cryosurgery for the condition his son lent his name to… Morton’s neuroma.
Foot Neuromas Explained
This common digital nerve runs along the bottom (plantar) surface of the foot and branches to supply sensation to the plantar aspect and tips of the third and fourth toes. Occasionally, the common digital nerves in the second inter-metatarsal space are affected.
Very rarely the nerve in the first or fourth inter-metatarsal space in the foot is involved. The thickening of the nerve sheath compresses the nerve within the sheath causing Morton’s Neuroma symptoms.
